Has an AI discovery capable of posing a dangerous threat to humanity been discovered? According to reports just that has happened and that may have been why Sam Altman was abruptly fired earlier this week in that whole mess online.
But let’s dig into this because this may be important. According to The Week, OpenAI may have discovered a dangerous algorithm that some of its own researchers say ‘poses’ a dangerous threat to the rest of us. Those safety concerns and the details that goes with them were not immediately clear. Some of those concerns appear to come from an OpenAI project called Project Q.
With Altman now back it is not entirely clear what transpired behind closed doors following pressure from Microsoft exec Satay Nadella.
